I was able to join in the last Technique Junkies ATC swap- we send in 6 ATC's and can use any TJ technique from newsletters or CD's.

 I used the Glitter Ribbons technique from the Aug/Sept 2010 Technique Junkies newsletter. Two variations on the theme here- one has more strips, and one I fussy cut the image out more than on the 2nd.  The image from Sparkle n Sprinkle is colored with Distress markers.  The sentiment is from Sweet Stamps.  It is so sparkly it was hard to photograph : )  I used Glitter Blush and Sunny Daze glitters from Sparkle and Sprinkle, and Art Institute Forget me not, and 2" sticky tape for the glitter strips.  I think there will be glitter here and there in my work room for a while... : )  

Here are the trades I rec'd back:
On the Lt., Splattered Bleach by Jinny Boyce
On the Rt.- Shaker Card tech (with Washi) by Beth Cutwright
Top- Stencil Tutorial- Elizabeth Hulse
Bottom- Misted Stencils- Marilyn Hughes
On the Lt., Bands of Color by Barb I
On the Rt., Diagonal Images by Priscilla LaBranche

I just love trading these technique ATC's- and see IRL techniques I have not done and NEED to try!

For the Glitter Ribbons ATC, I have a few challenges:
Sparkle n Sprinkle- Ag using EP, Glitter or Flocking
Incy Wincy- AG
Corrosive Challenge- Sparkle and Glitz
Creative Corner-Bling it out

Thanks for stopping by!

What fabulous ATC's you created Shelly - and I must admit the ones you received are stunning too.
p.s. - is it a case of glitter glitter everywhere, even in my hubby's hair??
